China's Fattest Man to Lose Weight in Yantai
Adjust font size:


Liang Yong, dubbed as “the fattest man in China”, arrived in Yantai on Monday evening. He was invited by a fitness center to fulfill a weigh-loss mission, according to Qingdao Morning News.


Hailing from a peasant family in Sichuan Province, Liang Yong weighs as much as 210 kilos but he’s very short — only 1.55 meters tall.


Liang drew crowds upon his arrival in Laishan Airport in Yantai, a coastal city located in northeast Shandong Province. His obesity is more eye-catching than a beautiful woman. The local Fukang Fitness Center has offered to help him cure his obesity.


Xu Qiufang, a doctor in the Fukang Fitness Center who accompanied him on his trip, told Qingdao Morning News: “We will help him lose 100 kilos; it will take two years. When his weight is controlled at 110 kilos, he will undergo surgery to tighten his skin to fit his body.”



Liang Yong became famous after the media reported on his weight problem. The doctor told him his obesity was not genetic. His problem has annoyed him since childhood and made him the target of ridicule. He now performs as an entertainer but his income is sporadic.


Last March, 28-year-old Liang was listed as China’s fattest man by Guinness Book of Records in Shanghai.
